Tennis superstar Serena Williams has given birth to her first child, a source close to the family has confirmed to Us Weekly.
The 35-year-old welcomed a baby girl at a hospital near her home in Palm Beach, Florida on Friday.
According to local news reports, Williams checked in on Wednesday, where she was expected to be induced on Thursday.
In an interview with Vanity Fair in June, Williams recalled the moment she found out that she and fiance, Alexis Ohanian, 34, the co-founder of Reddit, were expecting a baby.
“I did a double take and my heart dropped. Like literally it dropped,” she told Vanity Fair. The news came only days before she was set to compete in— and later win—the Australian Open.
